As the NFL free agency frenzy has quieted down and draft talks and rumors heat up, let’s take a look at the Jacksonville Jaguars' five biggest needs following free agency.
Marcedes Lewis is coming off a season in which he played just 11 games and had 359 receiving yards. Is he healthy enough to compete at a high level like his 700-yard and 10-touchdown season of 2010? This may be an area they can look at in the later rounds.
What good is a quarterback if there is nobody to throw to? Cecil Shorts and Ace Sanders are both deep threats, but are they good enough to be dominant receivers teams need to worry about every down? They have potential, but the Jaguars should consider a receiver in day two or even three.
Maurice Jones-Drew is long gone and he takes with him any sort of rushing attack Jacksonville may have had. The Jaguars can wait until day two fill this need, and Andre Williams would be an intriguing option in the middle rounds.
As the Seattle Seahawks showed, defense still wins championships, particularly ones that can rush the quarterback. With their first pick Jadeveon Clowney could be available and Khalil Mack will be. If the want to go with a pass rusher, they’ll have options at No. 3.
Chad Henne is a solid backup, but his time as a starter in the NFL is over. With the NFL becoming a more pass-oriented league, having a bona fide starter to build your team around is becoming paramount. Johnny Manziel, Blake Bortles or Teddy Bridgewater should be first-round targets.
